  • Equals



    Not as bad as the critics claim. Great performances, costumes and music.

  • Mustang



    A film of indescribable sadness and beauty. A new favourite.

  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

    Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them


    A light-hearted, feel-good romp... with no point. Warner Bros. just wants money now. Will not bother with the sequels.

  • The Choice

    The Choice


    Two stars for two stars - Benjamin Walker and Teresa Palmer make something out of a big nothing and manage to hold my attention for every predictable minute.

  • The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

    The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones

    Predictable drivel from fandom favourite/plagiarist Cassandra Clare. Some great visual choices made, my favourite being Jamie Campbell Bower, but otherwise uninspired and ultimately disappointing.

  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road


    Energetic and original, to say the least. A poor first act, however, so star deductions made. Otherwise, a visual feast.

  • Galore



    The tone and pace of this film is excellent, though they don't get it right all the time. Still, there are moments of brilliance here. Ashleigh Cummings is a superstar. The other young actors also do a good job with a so-so script. Triumphantly bleak, Galore is an exploration of feelings in a world of madness.

  • Avengers: Age of Ultron

    Avengers: Age of Ultron


    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Was expecting more considering the triumph that was The Avengers, but Joss Whedon takes us on a predictable, snail-paced ride... apart from the Scarlet Witch. Wow. Elizabeth Olsen is awesome in this movie. The Witch is exciting, emotional and a delight to encounter. Her twin also ticks the boxes, and the result of his death was so perfectly captured in Olsen's face/reaction, I almost cried. Otherwise, lots of testosterone flying around and not much substance.

  • Jumper



    This has to be one of the most frustrating films I've ever seen. Such a facsinating plot device buried under a typical love story? No thanks.

  • The Lucky One

    The Lucky One

    A star for one star - Zac Efron.

  • Kingsman: The Secret Service

    Kingsman: The Secret Service


    Some promising signs from youngster Taron Egerton, otherwise a bizarre bloodbath of a film.

  • I Am Number Four

    I Am Number Four


    Liked this more than I thought I would, but have to down-grade to a 2 1/2 because of the poor plotting.
